Curves & Corners Scarf is knitted in sections that are picked up as you go. The corners are mitred corners with a garter stitch ridge pattern and the curves are created using short row shaping in a rib and twisted stitch pattern. These stitch patterns are reversible.

The scarf begins with a little corner and a short curve and then builds up to bigger and bigger sections. As the sections are worked and the scarf grows longer, it begins to curl. The length along inside curved edge is approximately 170cm/ 67in.

There are many ways to wear Curves & Corners: draped lengthwise, wrapped around several times or folded in half and looped through itself. All ways of wearing make the corners stand out and give great structure to the scarf. When not being worn, the scarf can be coiled up and looks great stacked from small to large corner.

The scarf shown in the pattern is knitted using 3x50g balls of Sirdar Click Chunky with Wool in shade (119) Flinty (70% Acrylic, 30% Wool, 75m/50g).

Please take a look at my Ravelry Projects page for versions in other yarns. Generally, the heavier the weight of the yarn the bigger the corners and curves will be. I have also knitted a version in 4ply yarn which results in a very delicate twist, but needs lots of extra sections worked.

This pattern is very adaptable and I hope knitters will enjoy making this versatile scarf.
